A quick update on 2nd Edition.

The rules are written and edited. I’ve been working on the layout for PDF, print and Kindle. The Kindle layout is nearly there. I need to take a few more photos, then get the final bit of Kindle processing done. Print and PDF layout took me longer than expected and are still in progress.

The rules will first be available on Kindle followed by print and PDF later.

I’ll have a firm date on the Kindle release soon.
